As I haven't seen Zelph use his ROF to heat the larger pots and the rim of this little stove kind of resembles a crown may I dub thee "The Royal ROF", with permission of course. :mrgreen:

Or might this be thee "Torch" that inspires Zelph to create the afore mentioned RROF! :mrgreen:

Now that's a slick idea. Well done.

thanks.
with some trimming of the lower legs it will still fit in my snowpeak 700 cup / pot.
one of the lower legs is leaky... looks funny with a flame sputtering out of the rivet. nasa gone wrong!

rivets need backup plates to work a little better - they wanted to pull through the al. bottle.
i might add JB weld to the outer rivet to help it seal and avoid vapor loss through the lower legs...

You can get aluminum rivet washers for whatever size rivet you like at the hardware store. That should make it quite a bit stronger but you may need to use a slightly longer rivet.

Looks like it could get up and start walkin the trails and become a "Trailwalker" :D

Depending on the fuel maybe a "Skywalker"

revised small stove stand / pot stand.
a few more tweaks in mind, and the next version i'll have a little more patience on the bending / folding.
this is a good direction - just need to lighten it and tighten it up a bit. stows nicely.

stove is working quite nicely. waiting on some more bottles so i can start optimizing height of pot to burner.
takes a bit to get going in the cold... its about 30 deg in the garage. alky is stored out there so its cold too!
